Virtue signalling and the scumbag lawyer!

Take a good look through the eyes of this man. Do you know him, what sort of person is he, what is he most famous for, is he a good person or a bad person?
This is Phil Shiner, lawyer at Public Interest Lawyers who brought multiple cases of human rights abuse against British soldiers in Iraq based on lies, false claims, bogus witnesses, non existent victims …… all from Iraq. He caused untold damage to the British Military’s reputation and ruined the lives of many fine soldiers. The cases are too numerous to list here.
He has just been struck off from practicing law for misconduct. He was found to have acted dishonestly, paid sweeteners to a fixer, and made unsolicited approaches to potential clients. If ever there was a case for bringing a case of treason this is it!

“Congressmen who willfully take action during wartime that damages morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hung” Abraham Lincoln

Now, if that wasn’t bad enough we really need to ask ourselves how he got away with it for so many years. Why did the mainstream media not conduct a bit of good old investigative journalism investigating his methods, his sources, his evidence? I’ll tell you why, it’s because they were all so busy virtue signalling that they failed to recognise the national and personal damage being done.

{Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values by an individual done primarily to enhance their standing within a social group. Since 2015, the term has become more commonly used as a pejorative characterisation by commentators to criticize what they regard as the platitudinous, empty, or superficial support of socially progressive views on social media.}

So let’s salute these three virtue signallers who “got into bed” with this scumbag:

1. The BBC, a taxpayer funded supposedly independent media outlet who repeatedly gave Shiner air time on Newsnight, Panorama and other programmes. Presumably the BBC will now run a Panorama programme exposing the lies and apologising?

The Guardian
2. The Guardian newspaper, champion of the cultural marxists who described him as “crusading in the public interest” and “fighting in an honourable lawyers tradition”. Presumably the Guardian will now run a detailed article apologising to the families of all the wronged British soldiers?

3. Shami Chakrabati, Baroness, previous head of Liberty the human rights organisation who had previously made Shiner the Human Rights Lawyer of the year. Unbelievably this woman is the Labour Party’s Shadow Attorney General!  Presumably this award will now be revoked just as Fred Goodwins knighthood?

These cases did much more than ruin soldiers lives or make people suspicious of our military. They spawned the lie that Britain committed war crimes and sowed the seeds and fertilised them of ISIL propaganda regarding Britain’s illegal killing of Muslims. But I don’t suppose that there will be mass marches and protests because the average current protester is a virtue signaller too! God help us all!
